SIDNEY MILROY, OF MILLEDGEVILLE, ILLINOIS.
Specification of Letters Patent.
'Patentecl March 3, 1908.
Application filed October 2. 1907. Serial No. 395.619-
T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, SIDNEY MILRoY, citizen of the United States of America, residing at Milledgeville, in the county of Carroll and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Pump-Supports, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in pump supports.
It is an object of the invention to provide a novel device of this character which can be readily applied to any style of tubing.
It is also an object of the invention to provide a novel device of this character which may be anchored in cement, and should the supporting flange become broken it will not be necessary to remove the device from the cement.
Furthermore, it is an object of the invention to provide a novel device of the charac ter noted, which will possess advantages in points of simplicity, ei'liciency and durability, proving at the same time comparatively inexpensive to manufacture.
With the foregoing and otherobjects in view, the invention consists in the details of construction and in arrangement and combination of parts to be hereinafter more fully set forth and claimed.
In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings forming part of this specification wherein like characters denote corresponding parts in'the several views, in which' Figure 1, is a view in perspective showing the invention applied Fig. 2, is a view in elevation of the invention detached; Fig.3, is a View in perspective of the device inverted.
In the drawings, 1, denotes the base of cement in which the support 2, is partly submerged and anchored. This support 2, extends partly beneath the cement anchor and is coupled to or in engagement with the tubing of the pump.
To opposite sides of the support are secured the angle strips 3, which are employed to anchor the support in, position when the cement is to be applied. This is done by allowing the strips 3, to rest on the ground while the cement is being packed. To hold the tubing in position any suitable means are passed through the openings 5, in the angle strips. These strips may also be termed angle brackets as that is the purpose for which they are intended. The end portion v6, which projects above the cement base is threaded and in threaded engagement therewith is the flange 7, provided with the perfoe rations 8. The base of the ump proper is intended to rest upon this ange being secured thereto by the bolts 9, which pass through openings in the base of the pump and openings in the flange of the support.
While it forms no essential feature of the invention, it has been found best that the nuts of the bolts be beneath the flange of the support as thereby they are protected from injury, owing to the possibility of the same becoming rusted.
From the foregoing description it will read ily be-seen how an eflicient support will be provided for a pump. Should the flange become broken, it will not be necessary to remove any of the concretestructure. It is only required that the flange be unthreaded from the support proper and a new one placed thereon as will, it is thought, be fully understood.
While it has not herelnbefore been stated that the support is a hollow cylindrical body, it may be well to state that such is the case.
hat I claim is:
1. As a new article of manufacture, a pump support comprising a cylindrical body, a flange in removable engagement therewith, and detachable anchoring means carriedby the support.
2. As a new article of manufacture, a pump support comprising a cylindrical body, a flange in removable engagement therewith, and angle strips detachably secured to the support.
In testimony whereof I hereby afiiX my signature in the presence of two witnesses this 23rd day of September 1907.
WALTER BELL, O. H. SARBER.
